Charles is 68. He wrote a letter explaining how wonderful his life has been and saying he has only a few weeks to live. We will greatly miss him.
He is a unique man. The Obama White House apologized to him. Wiki wrote:
On July 27, 2012, Krauthammer wrote a column that stated that President Barack Obama “started his presidency by returning to the British Embassy the bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office.” In 2010 White House curator William Allman claimed that the bust had been on loan to President George W. Bush by British Prime Minister Tony Blair and “was already scheduled to go back” once Bush left office. However, Dan Pfeiffer, then Obama’s communications director, called Krauthammer’s claim “patently false” and “ridiculous,” expounding: “The bust [is] still in the White House. In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room.” It quickly emerged that the bust Pfeiffer referenced was in fact a completely different bust of Churchill that had been given to President Lyndon B. Johnson decades earlier. On July 30 Krauthammer demanded a retraction and apology from the White House. He initially received a private apology, but, upon his request, the apology was made public in the White House Blog on July 31. Krauthammer later said that he was “the only entity on earth, other than rogue states, that has received an apology from the White House.”
